Hi, my 1998 GTP has been that way for over 4 years now. I have heard that it can be a variety of things that might be wrong. Instead of replacing parts at random until it is fixed, I just took the cover off of the trans lock release that is beside the shifter on the right. When the cover is removed, you need to inject a pen or key or anything small enough to fit in the hole and push down. While pushing down, shift the lever out of park. You will probably need to do this everytime you want to shift out of park.

Just curious if you found out what was wrong with your grandprix. We have a 2002 and are experiencing the same problems.
If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.
I am having hesitation problems with my 2000 grandprix GT
when excellerating at about 10% throttle i get hesitation any where from 50km to 100km/hour. It does this between 2000 and 2400 rpm when it get's to 2400 it drops to 2200 even with the same amount of gas (foot has'nt moved). I have run fuel injection cleaner thruogh it as well as changed the fuel filter. I have taken it to the dealer(I have a friend that works there) we took it to for a long test drive with there scanner and nothing came up no codes at all.
any body have a solution to this problem?
thank in advance

This is a problem that Pontiac is aware of. Depending on the milage they may help you out. I had to bite the $400.00 bullet but it did fix the problem. Good luck.
#848 of 980 Loud rumbling sound on on my 99 Grand Prix GT
Jul 17, 2006 (8:54 am)
When I get above 20 mph or so the car starts making a loud rumbling sound that sounds like its coming from under the hood. It almost sounds like a plane taking off or a monster truck and the sound gets louder as i accelerate. The wierd part is when I turn the steering wheel to the left the noise almost completely disappears (for instance when I change lanes to the left on the expressway). The car has 110k on it and I have taken great care of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you ever find a solution to your hesitation problem. I also have a 2000 GT that recently started having the exact same problem. I was hoping that a fuel treatment/cleaner would take care of it, but apparently it didn't for you.
#850 of 980 Fan and daytime driving lamps don't come on
Jul 17, 2006 (6:39 pm)
I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix with auto trans and 3.8 engine. Several weeks ago, I noticed that the driving lights and the fan that moves the air in the car didn't come on when the ignition was turned on. This was an intermittent problem that cleared within 30 - 60 seconds. Until today.
Today, the problem wouldn't clear and I noticed the following. With the fan switch set to positions 1 through 4, the lights don't come on and there is no air flow. Turn the fan switch to off and the lights come on. Turn the fan siwtch to 5 and I get air and lights.
Would sincerely appreciate any ideas.

I took my car in today and thought I would post what was wrong in case someone else has this problem. It was the front left hub bearing assembly. Only cost like $370 at AC Tire.

There is a switch inside your steering column, take the screws out and look on the right side, there will be a little white switch, with a little button mash that button in and it will release, replace the switch or just let it hang

I wish I had ideas how to fix that problem; I am experiencing a similar issue with my 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix SE with the AT and 3.1L V6. My HVAC controls sometimes don't work until they feel like it. I will turn on the fan or AC when leaving and sometime driving down the road it will come on. If I crank it to "5" it will come on right away most times but as soon as I turn it back down it goes out. No lights on the controls and at the same time my DRL's (Daytime Running Lights) don't come on. Please help us!
